protestors. >> a day of action at cal. how students are taking a stand after this violent clash with police. starting out with some patchy fog around the bay area, looking to more sunshine. there is some rain in the forecast, too. we'll talk about that coming up. and look how smooth things are flowing right now in the south bay. here's a live look at 101 traffic near mckee in san jose. coming up, a check of bay area bridges. all right, guys. thanks much. good morning, everyone. it's tuesday, november 15. i'm frank mallicoat. >> and i'm grace lee. it is 5 a.m. "occupy oakland" activists regroup and move on to a different park in oakland. >> that's right. kristy seifkin is in snow park in oakland and you would think that they would have taken both tents down but they have not. there are dozens that have popped up and they have popped up overnight. good morning. >> reporter: they took down the tents at frank ogawa plaza yesterday but still, many tents out here this morning at snow park. the notice that the city released on sunday said it's illegal for people to pitch tents or any kind of structure
in any city park and snow park was one of the location listed in the notice. that said, the city hasn't moved in and raided snow park yet. yesterday after that raid happened there was a meeting held by protestors at the library this downtown oakland and there they discussed several options fo where they would set up again, including snow park or vacant buildings or frank ogawa plaza. if campers go to frank ogawa plaza, it would be in violation to the campers that chief jordan told them yesterday. the city had originally said protestors could only demonstrate during park hours. but now there is a question about whether the grassy area in the plaza is even considered a park. >> until there is clarity about the grassy area, we're treating the entire area as a public
space and there is no time limit to when you can be in a public place. >> campers are obviously concerned about where they are going to stay whether it's here or elsewhere. but a question on the public's mind has been the cost of this whole "occupy oakland" movement. and some new figures were just released yesterday from the city. those figures stated that about $2.4 million total have been spent since the tents were first pitched on october 10 including a little over a million dollars in police costs alone. in a press conference yesterday, chief jordan said that of the 13 law enforcement agencies that were called to help it yesterday with the raid, oakland is going to have to pay about a half million dollars and that doesn't even cover the cost of oakland's own law enforcement officers. and then there's the cost of the clean-up. that's estimated at about $16,000 a day. so certainly a lot of costs to contend with. the main concern though still for campers is whether or not they will be raided. if you will recall from yesterday's press conference,
chief jordan said that it's not a question of if snow park will be raided. it's a question of when it will be raided. he said that the focus yesterday was on frank ogawa plaza, simply because of resources. they wanted to make sure they had enough manpower to clone out that encampment with the largest number of tents but now these campers are waiting. about 40 tents remain as of yesterday sitting here waiting and wondering when they might be raided, as well. back to you. >> it seems crazy, it seems like they are moving a problem from downtown to snow park. it's illegal to camp or spend the night in a park overnight in oakland, now they are saying snow park go ahead, eventually we'll take care of that. why not just say leave? >> reporter: that's a question that a lot of people have asked mayor quan. they have asked chief jordan. i think that at this point given the bad rap that oakland law enforcement and mayor quan got with the original tear gas raid and yesterday's raid, they are trying to appease people, trying buy time while they
figure out what to do next. chief jordan was very clear yesterday that snow park encampment will be raided again. so then they will move to somewhere else so maybe empty buildings are a viable option. >> they are spending millions and going to spend more money to get people out of there because you know people will eventually end up there. doesn't make sense. >> reporter: absolutely. >> we'll take it from there. kristy seifkin live in oakland, thank you. talking about those mixed messages, oakland mayor jean quan has a new nickname in the protest camp. they are calling her flipper for flipping her position on the "occupy" protests camp. so our exclusive cbs 5 poll finds 82% of oakland voters disapprove of hour mayor quan has handled protestors and 78% disapprove how the mayor is running the city. that's up 7% sense our last poll. two top aids to mayor quan have quit. legal advisor dan siegel ravined to protest quan's
decision to raid the "occupy oakland" encampment, he resigned. another person has resigned effective immediately with unknown reasons. uc-berkeley students plan an "occupy cal" strike today. participation could be in the thousands. they plan to march from oakland to the cal campus in berkeley as xenical students plan to suit university -- 7 cal students plan to sue the university for police brutality allegedly. they say they were beaten by batons by police during that protest. the lawsuit calls for the chancellor to resign, as well. the regents had planned to get an update from uc staff about using private fundraising in order to avoid raising tuition on the students but police say anarchists have been planning to attach themselves to peaceful protests by students and possible commit violent acts so the meetings were cancelled by the regents.
>> there was evidence that law enforcement found very credible that there was some rogue elements who were locking to cause trouble, violence and vandalism. >> several thousand people are still expected to travel to the city for the protests and a rally is planned tomorrow in the financial district. here's the warning for you dog owners out there. the spca is urging protestors not to bring their dogs to the "occupy sf" camp. they could catch a deadly disease. "the examiner" reports three cases of highly contagious parvo virus were diagnosed among dogs at the camp. experts also believe that some dogs there have kennel cough. the camp is growing beyond the boundaries of justin herman plaza and as you can see, and some businesses along nearby market street have barricades up to control the expanding crowds. the new york city park where anti-wall street protestors have been camping is getting a good scrubbing this morning. here's a live look. you can see there's a lot of movement going on at the park.
police emptied out the site and arrested up to 100 people who wouldn't leave but clearly there are still people there. some chained themselves together. new york city mayor michael bloomberg says protestors will be allowed back into zuccotti park without their tents and they need to follow the rules. 5:07. the fbi is joining the probe into a computer hacking scandal at santa clara university. agents are questioning people at scu after someone broke into the computer system and changed the grades of more than 60 current and former students for the better. the unauthorized access happened between june of 2010 and july of this year. university says no other personal information was compromised. all right. 5:07. let's check in with lawrence for a look at our sunny weather. >> yesterday was beautiful. i was down on the marina. gorgeous. >> temperatures warmer around the bay area by the afternoon. starting out a little chilly in some spots this morning. again some of the temperatures

49ers stadium. the mayor calls it a soft groundbreaking, moving utilities and sidewalks. it will cost $10 million in current and future tax revenue for the city. but the cash-strapped city will have to borrow some of the money from the 49ers. the nba season is in serious jeopardy. players rejected the league's latest contract offers. >> certainly have. it's called for 50/50 split of basketball-related income and a shortening season that would start on december 15. players are now in the process of disbanding their union and forming a trade association instead. then they plan to file a class action lawsuit against the league. i mean 50, 50. that seems like a fair split. >> do you know how much money is involved? >> the average salary last year for an nba player $4 million. >> we should have played basketball, frank. if only we had the skill and the height. >> never would have made it but certainly would take the
the hot seat. he stumbled badly when the m another one of those oops moments in the republican presidential race. this morningings though, it's herman cain in the hot seat. he stumbled badly when the milwaukee journal sentinel asked for his thoughts yesterday on the president's handling of libya. >> i do not agree with the way he handled it for the following reason -- uhm, no, that's a different one. uhm....... [ pause ] i got to go back to see, uhm.... -- [ pause ] >> got all this stuff twirling around in my head. >> maybe a simple yes or no would have been a propos there. cain went on to explain he would have done more thorough assessment of the opposition before deciding how to proceed in libya. top aide said later that cain
had not had much sleep prior to that interview. los angeles international airport is flying past chicago's o'hare as the nation's busiest airport for thanksgiving weekend travel according to ticket sales from orbitz. the "l.a. times" reports orlando is expected to be third busiest over thanksgiving. then comes san francisco international airport and boston's logan international airport. cockroaches, yuck, on board a passenger's flight. >> this is pretty gross. now one couple is seeking $100,000 in damages. they must have taken one home. the lawsuit stems from an airtran flight in september from charlotte to houston. you can see a picture of a cockroach right there crawling around the plane's vents. couple says they complained to a flight attendant and she put a finger to her lips to silence them. the lawsuit claims emotional distress and, of course, they took a picture of it. >> $100,000 you better take a picture. >> hello. it is 5:26. the fbi and bay area college and a hacking scandal. the bizarre changes made in the

your realtime captioner is linda marie macdonald. "occupy oakland" cleared out so what is next? the three options demonstrators will soon decide upon. a lot of sunshine coming our way. temperatures starting to heat up around the bay area. but we have some rain in the forecast. we'll talk about that coming up. and we are off to a very pleasant start at bay area bridges including this live look now. conditions towards the pay gates at the bay bridge toll plaza. a check of more bridges and mass transit coming up. good morning. it's tuesday, november 15. i'm grace lee. >> hi, everybody. i'm frank mallicoat. time now is 5:30. they said they would and they are. "occupy oakland" protestors are regrouping this morning. >> but they are on the move after police shut down their camp. kristy seifkin is in oakland where they can continue to gather but the city says they cannot pitch their tents at least in some areas. it's all very confusing. >> definitely a lot of confusing messages out there. , you know, those tents taken
down at frank ogawa plaza yesterday but plenty of tents here this morning at snow park. a notice sent out by city on sunday said it's illegal for protestors to pitch tents in any park and snow park was specifically listed in the letter, but police have yet to raid this location. yesterday afternoon the protestors met at the city library in oakland to discuss multiple options for where they are going to set up now that they can no longer camp in the plaza. one of the options is here at snow park. another option would be to get in some of those vacant buildings in downtown oakland and then that final option even though technically it's not allowed, it's to go back to frank ogawa plaza and obviously if campers choose to do this, it would be in direct violation of the terms that chief jordan set down yesterday. he said they can park at all hours of the day but can't have
structures there. >> we don't have reason to keep people out of the plaza because it's a public domain. if people are coming here to break the law, cause property damage, then we intend to arrest them. >> reporter: campers are obviously concerned about figuring out where they are going to stay. but a concern for the public, specifically oakland's taxpayers, is the cost of this whole "occupy oakland" movement. the city released numbers yesterday saying that about $2.4 million have been spent since that first tent was pitched at the plaza on october 10. now, that includes a little bit over a million dollars in police costs alone. and in a press conference yesterday, we learned that the 13 law enforcement agencies that were called in to help during yesterday's raid will cost oakland a half million dollars. and that doesn't even cover the cost of oakland's own law enforcement officers. and that clean-up is also estimated at $16,000 a day. so a lot of costs to consider and then additionally protestors wondering when chief jordan is going to move in with his forces to raid snow park
sense he said it's an issue of when not an issue of if it will happen. >> if they are going to be take the tents down in all the parks, i think they mentioned in the press conference yesterday that frank ogawa plaza will have security 24/7 to keep the tents from going up. is that the plan for every park in oakland? how can you stop this? >> reporter: it's a really good question and it's something that a lot of people asked in the press conference yesterday. here at snow park no police presence at least that we can see this morning. and chief jordan stayed kind of tight-lipped about snow park in general. a lot of people asked questions about why haven't you raided it? how are you not controlling it the seam way that you have controlled frank ogawa plaza? and i have a feeling that they have something in the works because he didn't share a lot of details so it's a waiting game to see the plan. >> seems crazy. if the parks are closed, they're closed. we'll see where it all goes. kristy seifkin live in oakland, thanks. in the meantime some protestors are using the
nickname flipper for mayor quan for her changing positions on the "occupy oakland" camp. 82% of oakland voters disapprove of how she handled the protests. 12% approve and 6% say they're not sure. in the meantime, two top aides to mayor quan have quit. legal advisor dan siegel says he resigned to protest kwan's decision to raid the "occupy" encampment. quan says deputy mayor sharon cornu has also resigned effective immediately although the reason is undisclosed a new concern at "occupy sf." the spca urges protestors not to take dogs to the camp. they could catch a deadly disease. "the examiner" reports three cases of highly ton teenager just parvo virus were diagnosed among the dogs at the camp here in the city. experts also think some of the dogs there may have kennel cough. the camp is growing beyond its boundaries as well at justin herman plaza. some businesses along nearby market street have barricades up now to control the expanding
crowd there. meanwhile, new york city, the park there with the anti- wall street protestors has been camping -- is getting a good scrubbing this morning. police emptied out the site overnight and arrested 100 people who wouldn't leave. some chained themselves together. the protestors will be allowed back at zuccotti park but without their tents and camping gear. protestors had planned to hold a major demonstration on thursday to mark the two-month anniversary of the "occupy" movement. today uc-berkeley students plan to strike and a day of action. several students are suing the school for excessive police force. they also want the chancellor to resign. anser hassan reports from berkeley. >> reporter: good morning, grace. the rally isn't planned until later on today but there's already significant police presence just within the one block of sproul plaza. let's show you some live
pictures. about 3 students are here right now in support of the "occupy" cal movement. uc-berkeley students and faculty are calling for an all- day general strike and rally as part of the "occupy cal" movement. but they are hoping to avoid a repeat of last week's events where they clashed with campus police. here's some video from last week when about 40 students were arrested. later this morning a lawyer representing seven of the students is filing a lawsuit against uc-berkeley police which i should point out is separate from the city of berkeley's police department. the students allege the campus police used excessive force against unarmed students saying police hit them with batons and grabbed them by the hair. university and campus police declined comment. students are calling on the chancellor to resign. the chancellor and regents are canceling their meeting for tomorrow . there is a missed
opportunity to come together to work on solutions, but investigators say they received reports that anarchist were planning to disrupt the meeting. >> it was evidence that law enforcement found very credible that there was some rogue elements who were locking to cause trouble, violence and vandalism. >> now, the events for berkeley start around 8 a.m. and at 2 p.m. they plan to march throughout the city and marching on big banks such as wells fargo and citibank. they plan to regroup at 5:00 and "occupy" sproul plaza so it should be an interesting day. grace, frank, back to you. >> i guess. okay, anser hassan live over at uc-berkeley. meanwhile california's oldest university has a computer hacking scandal on its hands. fbi is questioning people at santa clara university after someone broke into the computer system and changed the grades of more than 60 current and former students. all the grades were changed for the better, by the weigh.
the unauthorized access happened between june of 2010 and july of 2011. scu says no other personal information was compromised. 5:38. and i think it's going to be a good day for lawrence. >> i think it's going to be a fantastic day for lawrence and all of us because we have some sunshine. >> the straight "a" day around the bay area today. lots of sunshine and looks like some really nice weather starting out a little chilly in spots this morning and we have patchy fog in the valleys. other than that look good. numbers now 37 in the napa valley, 38 chilly in santa rosa with fog in the north bay. 46 san jose. 49 pacifica. we are looking good toward the afternoon. right around seasonal for this time of the year. usually we're holding into the 60s and looks like that will be the case toward the afternoon. plenty of 60s some of the warmest temperatures getting near 70 degrees by the afternoon. all right. let's check the roads with elizabeth. >> we're just cruising here in the traffic department. not much going on, pretty good across bay area bridges including this life look here
across the san mateo bridge. westbound 92 starting to get busy in the westbound lanes but still only about 13 minutes out of hayward heading towards foster city. let's go to our maps show you more live traffic cameras. first bart is running 40 trains all on time. ace train 1 looks great. muni, caltrain, your ferries also reporting no delay. and if you are coming down the eastshore freeway, here's a live snapshot of traffic heading past the ashby exit. it looks good through berkeley all the way down towards the macarthur maze. one more camera. we have a look at the silicon valley drive. here's a live look through milpitas at 880/237. that is traffic. back to you. >> thank you. coming up, a new government, a massive debt and a shaky market. >> the risky move by italy that's having a bad impact on stocks today. also ahead. >> we cannot wait to see them playing, walking and running. >> high hopes for conjoined twins who are now separated. the big change the mother is noticing about her daughters. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
the dow dropped about 75 pos yesterday... because of the ongoing debt crisis in euro. wed the dow jones industrial average dropped 75 points yesterday because of the ongoing don't crisis in europe that we have been hearing -- debt crisis in europe that we have been hearing about. now there is renewed concern about italy ability to repay its massive debt. jill schlesinger, editor at large for cbsmoneywatch.com join us. hope you had a nice two-week break. >> it was awesome. >> what's the big concern? what is going on in italy right now? >> reporter: you know, italy is a big story as opposed to greece. look, greece owes a lot of money relative to the size of its economy. it's the most indebted country in the world. okay? but it's a small economy. so the actual number that it
takes to bail out greece is doable. italy is the third largest economy in europe. it owes over $2.6 trillion. so the european central bank or even the other european nations can't just write a check and fix this problem. so italy is a problem. the only good news is that relatively speaking, yeah, they don't owe that much money but the cost of its borrowing is starting to rise because investors are getting spooked. they don't want to lend the money fearing they won't get paid back. >> my question for you and a lot of people i think missed this for the average joe at home who says what does that have to do with me? it has a lot to do with everyone here in the u.s., right? >> reporter: yes. absolutely. now, here's the chain of events. don't let your eyes glaze over. this is interesting. [ laughter ] >> if italy or greece doesn't make a debt payment, what happens is european banks take a big hit. right? so just pretend you're the european bank. you lent greece or italy some
money and now you find out the loan that you thought was going to get paid back 100 cents on the dollar is not going to get paid back what does that do to your bank? it makes your bank weaker. why do we care about european banks? because united states banks do a lot of business in europe especially with the european banking system. so if they have a problem in european banks, we're going to have a problem in our banks. we have about $640 billion of exposure to european banks. so that's a problem. second problem, hey, we sell a lot of stuff in europe. if they go into a cascading terrible recession, we're looking at a big problem for our own exporters. this could push us into a much slower growth rate or even again outside chance that ourselves go into recession. >> i think i was going to say we all forget it's a global economy. we're insulated here thinking, buy this, do that. but it's all connected.
>> reporter: it is. the problems that are going on in europe are very similar to the problems that we saw in our own investment banks back this 2008. but instead of having one federal reserve and people who are basically on the same page, you got 17 different countries all with their own distinct interests. so it's hard to come up with a solution and that's what we have seen play out over the last 18 months. >> thank you, jill schlesinger, editor at large for cbsmoneywatch.com. time for a little bit of weather now. if you liked yesterday, we may have a carbon copy return thanks to mr. lawrence karnow. >> i thought it was going to be better. >> it will be a little better. >> what's up with that? [ laughter ] >> it will be a little nicer around the bay area folks. hard to get nicer than yesterday with a gorgeous afternoon. today though maybe a couple of degrees warmer outside. kind of a cool start to the beginning of the day. we have some patchy ground fog in the interior val less but other than, that looking good. as we sail into the afternoon, we're going to enjoy that
sunshine. mostly sunny skies inside the bay. temperatures in the mid-60s. as you make your way well inland, temperatures well into the 60s, near 70 degrees in some of the warmest spots. high pressure in control. it's going to stay here for the next day or so probably through tomorrow and then things weaken as that ridge starts to break down. the whole jet stream dips south then the possibility of some rain. but for today mild by the afternoon. enjoy it. lots of sunshine inside the bay, temperatures in the south bay up into the 60s. 67 los gatos. 63 redwood city. 59 half moon bay with patchy fog. temperatures moving into the 60s in the east bay. 67 degrees in napa. 67 livermore. 66 san ramon. inside the bay, 50s and a few 60s but should be mostly sunny skies. and then it looks like as we head over the next couple of days we're look good but then things change into thursday. clouds move in. showers overnight thursday, not a real big storm but could open
